Landon came HOME!

This week on August 25th 10 days after Landon was born he finally came home for the hospital. We were SO HAPPY to finally have him home with us. He is so sweet and such a joy to have around! Because Landon's lungs need time to recover, he will be on oxygen for a couple of weeks. Landon won't be allowed to go to public places for the winter so he doesn't get sick! We are so grateful he was able to recover from his pneumonia.

All loaded up and ready to leave the hospital for the first time!
Here are some happy brothers!

The rest are more pictures from the hospital....
This is Sunday morning when grandma Sherrie brought over Collin, Casen and Coleson to see their new baby brother and nephew.

These are pictures of Landon's time with us in Special care.

Look... no IV in my head. This is my new oxygen.

"No kids allowed" This was the closest big bros got. Only window watching.
You can see how handsome Landon is here... for a small moment in time he didn't have a feeding tube, an IV in his head, or oxygen.

Landon Michael Mink

Landon Michael Mink was born at 1:27 AM on Aug. 15, 2010 at the Timpanogas Hospital in Orem, Utah. Landon weighed 7 lbs. 8 oz., measured 20 inches in length, and was born with a perfect head of light brown hair.

JesseAnn gave birth less than 90 minutes after arriving at the hospital just after midnight and gave birth to Landon naturally (with no pain killers). Her nurse and midwife were both fantastic and Dad did OK too ;).

Landon's nurse noticed that he was having a difficult time keeping his temperature up and that he seemed to be breathing heavily and Monday morning Landon was admitted to the Special Care Unit for pneumonia.

This news was semi-tragic for Jesse and I, as we were told that he would have to stay in the hospital for at least 5-7 days after Jesse was discharged. However, Landon has really progressed well and the Doctor feels confident that we can expect to take him home this coming Monday morning!

Thanks to all for your thoughts, prayers, gifts, and love. Here are a few pictures of Landon and his family from the last few days.
